Reproductive isolation among sympatric cryptic species in marine diatoms.
The Protist Ribosomal Reference database (PR2): a catalog of unicellular eukaryote Small Sub-Unit rRNA sequences with curated taxonomy
The presence of both rRNA and rDNA sequences, taking into account introns (crucial for eukaryotic sequences), a normalized eight terms ranked-taxonomy and updates of new GenBank releases were made possible by a long-term collaboration between experts in taxonomy and computer scientists.
DIVERSITY IN THE GENUS SKELETONEMA (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE). II. AN ASSESSMENT OF THE TAXONOMY OF S. COSTATUM‐LIKE SPECIES WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF FOUR NEW SPECIES 1
The morphology of strains of Skeletonema Greville emend Sarno et Zingone was examined in LM, TEM, and SEM and compared with sequence data from nuclear small sub unit rDNA and partial large subunit rDNA, challenging the concept of S. costatum as a single cosmopolitan and opportunistic species.
Patterns of Rare and Abundant Marine Microbial Eukaryotes
Global diversity and biogeography of Skeletonema species (bacillariophyta).
Intraspecific diversity in Scrippsiella trochoidea (Dinopbyceae): evidence for cryptic species
The grouping of haplotypes in a series of distinct clades suggests the existence of cryptic species within what has previously been considered a single species, based on the morphological features of the motile cells and cysts.
The origin and evolution of the diatoms: their adaptation to a planktonic existence
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE GENUS CAULERPA (CAULERPALES, CHLOROPHYTA) INFERRED FROM CHLOROPLAST tufA GENE1
A molecular phylogeny was inferred from chloroplast tufA sequences of 23 taxa of Caulerpa to better understand the evolutionary history of the genus, finding high bootstrap values support monophyly of C. mexicana, C. sertularioides, and C. prolifera, whereas most other C Faulerpa species show para‐ or polyphyly.
Marine protist diversity in European coastal waters and sediments as revealed by high-throughput sequencing.
This extensive and systematic sequencing of geographically separated sites provides the most comprehensive molecular description of coastal marine protist diversity to date.
Phylogeography of the invasive seaweed Asparagopsis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta) reveals cryptic diversity
Phylogeographic results suggest separation of Atlantic and Indo‐Pacific lineages resulted from the emergence of the Isthmus of Panama, as well as from dispersal events postdating the closure event, such as the invasion of the Mediterranean Sea by mitochondrial lineages 2 and 3.
